Jack the Ripper is simply a lone assassin who “officially” killed four prostitutes and got away without ever being caught and convicted of his crimes. Many people ask, why is Jack so famous? and the reason behind that is the Press would often lie about the murders. During the time of these murders Press had little to no information so in order to make a story they often created false leads and exaggerated details which often threw off police for they would sometimes follow these false leads.. It is also said that some journalists wrote fake letters to the Police giving them false leads to follow.
To Die or Not to Die Should a man be punished for a crime he had involvement in, but did not technically commit? This question has been asked for decades over the Clutter Murders of 1959. Richard “Dick” Hickock was the man to convince Perry Smith to travel with him to Holcomb, Kansas to pay a visit to Herb Clutter and family. Although Hickock was the one to plan the entire visit, which included robbing and murdering the family, he never physically laid a finger on the trigger of the shotgun or knife that killed Herb Clutter and his innocent wife and children. Hickock deserved the fate of the death penalty due to his manipulation of Perry and his involvement in the crime.
Forensically speaking there is no evidence that proves that Ramirez had any mental disorders. Although he does have the characteristics of someone who is a sociopath, such as compartmentation . However, what intrigued me about Ramirez wasn’t just the murder himself, but what motivated him to commit his murders and the theory of nature versus nurture. Richard did not have a strong foundation as a child because he was being raised by an abusive, alcoholic father and a mother who appeared to not protect Richard from the father, this is the perfect foundation in creating a serial killer. The pivotal moment when Ramirez became a serial killer was when he watched mike murder his wife because he associated murder with sex.
Because the couple withheld a needed drug in order to kill her, the murder could never be proven. This story inspired Wargrave to plan multiple murders of people who had killed but could not be prosecuted under the law. He thought of the “Ten Little Indian” rhyme that he loved as a child for its series of inevitable deaths. Wargrave took his time gathering a list of victims, bringing up the topic of unpunished murders in casual conversations and hoping someone would mention a case of which they knew.
Then there’s Freddy Krueger, he gets revenge and kills people in their dreams, causing their death in the real world as well. Michael Meyers and Dr. Hannibal Lecter are more examples of infamous serial killers. All of these exaggerated serial killers created are not only feared in movies and television shows, but in real life too. Many of these movies and television shows try to make our minds believe that these fictional killers and scenarios are real. Contrary to popular belief and fictional movies, there’s no way to “tell” a serial killer by their appearance.
Williams’s death was the cause of executions of Justine. Justine was executed for a crime the monster committed, Victor also took responsibility for this death because it to was caused by the monster he created.

This proves that not all serial killers can be classified with all the same characteristics. Vera was paranoid by the idea of her lovers losing interest in her (Vera Renczi – The Black Widow Serial Killer Who Killed All Of Her Lovers). This fear drove her to kill the moment she had the slightest insinuation of infidelity. Even though the two serial killers, Macbeth and Vera Renczi, do not correspond with every category, they are both serial killers in their own unique way. Macbeth can be concluded to be a serial killer due to the definition of a serial killer, his learning curve, and his evolving motives.
In fact, if detectives had not caught him, Perry could have easily become a serial killer. Because the term “serial killer” was not coined until the early 1970s (Gustainis), Perry would not actually have the title; he would, however, have followed patterns typical of what the world knows as a serial killer today. While often confused with other types of murders, serial killers are very unique in that they will target many unfamiliar, yet often similar, victims over a period of time (Mulick). In Capote’s novel, Perry had never met the Clutters; they were strangers, hapless victims of his vicious crime (Capote 283). Furthermore, the stereotype of male serial killers, which Perry would fall into, is actually generally accurate, as only 14% of all serial killers are female (Crime and Punishment).
Michael learned about this treachery and was going to get his revenge. (Michael is also suspected of the murder of Alex Cross’s wife, Maria Cross, but truth be told he wasn’t the act... ... middle of paper ... ...l “The Butcher” Sullivan, when he killed people, had a mark or signature he left behind for the cops to tell them that it was (not directly telling them it was him) his kill or victim. Many psychopaths out there had the same method of killing people by branding them their victims. Examples would be like “The Zodiac Killer”, “Jack the Ripper”, and “The Bone Collector”. Many of these killers where either never caught or it took the cops a long while to figure out who did it.
Only a few clues were ever unearthed by the bewildered Police Force of the 1880's, further whetting the appetites of present day theorists in their quest for the "Mysterious Monster". At the time of the murders, detectives had never before experienced the apparently motiveless brutality of the world's first serial killer. The increasingly frustrated Police Force, pressured by an angry public and QUEEN VICTORIA herself, were to arrest several suspects on flimsy evidence, only to have these lowly scapegoats committed to,lunatic asylums, in a pathetic attempt to rid the streets of the dark assailant. No-one was above suspicion...SIR CHARLES WARREN, Chief of Metropolitan Police, was to be suspected of his involvement in a "cover up" and even Queen Victoria's own grandson PRINCE EDWARD, was at one stage considered to be a "Ripper Suspect". Although time has allowed hindsight, and numerous suspects have been presented, many are too ridiculous to be consider... ... middle of paper ... ...ect was that he feared he was going insane like his mother before him, In a suicide note Druitt wrote "Since Friday I felt I was going to be like Mother and the best thing for me was to die".
